Chris (Brooks Wheelan’s mom)
We Called Your Mom #23 January 25, 2021
Chris is a down-to-earth and refreshing woman. She was born in Jefferson City, Missouri and grew up on her family’s dairy farm. Chris was one of 7 children who were given their very own cow to raise and care for, eventually becoming 9-10 head of cattle to oversee. Chris was involved in band, pep squad, track, and 4-H in high school. Today, she is an accountant and credits her parents for the financial responsibilities they gave her on the dairy farm as a young girl. As a Mom, Chris shared her love of reading with her three sons. One of her favorite memories with her youngest son, Brooks, was standing out in the middle of their two-acre family home looking through a telescope waiting for a magnificent meteor shower…whispering to each other. Brooks is a stand-up comedian, writer and actor who has been featured on Seth Meyers, Conan, SNL, GIRLS and AP Bio. He hosts his own podcast called Entry Level.
